This is how far I got before leaving
Came home and did a little bit more
Now onto the highlight of my vacation. It started here
Marlene had this wonderful idea that we could meet other bloggers by visiting their blogs and making friends. Anyone interested could participate and she would coordinate.
The very first blog that was highlighted was
I went to visit Linda and while perusing her blog I noticed that in one of her pictures of her new home that her living room looked just like the living room of the home we will be retiring to in The Villages, FL.
I read more and found that she lives in the Villages. I got in touch with Linda via Email and find that she lives just blocks from where we will be living. The blog world is simply amazing.
Moving on, Linda is in the process of getting the Central Florida MQG established. She mentioned this in one of our email exchanges and told me when the next meeting would be and invited me if I was around. Well it coincided with our trip. I went to the meeting and met Linda live and in person, so cool, such fun. Thank you so much Marlene.
I also signed up to be part of this group. The fun part is that you don't have to be there to participate.
For their next meeting they will be working on the current block trending in blog world, The scrappy trip around the world. Coincidentally that is the block I am working on in conjuction with the D9P, surprise, surprise a quilter working on multiple projects.
These are the 2 I finished the night before we headed to FL.
And this is what I've been up to since I've been home.
It's the makings for an additional 7 blocks plus the reds and pinks from my stash for additional blocks.
In summation, my vacation was absolutely wonderful on every level.
